O2 sensor Extenders
I am wondering if the O2 sensor extenders available can be used instead of the EFIE units?
I am putting together a HHO System for My 1986 Mercedes 300E, Gas Vehicle, or I may put it on my 1995 Chev Silverado 3500 Pick Up Tow Truck.
Does anyone know how these O2 extenders work?

1982 Mercedes Turbo Diesel, Automatic.
unit is:Water Filter Housing, 10"X4".
Distilled water with 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda.
Plates: Stainless Steel Wire
wound around two plastic plates.
Continuous Duty Solinoid, 30Amp
inline fuse. On/of Switch with Indicator Light.

They usually don't. And definitely not on the Silverado. I have one.

RE: O2 sensor Extenders
Most people report no improvement or a loss using extenders. I can think of only one person who reported a gain.

Waste of time and money, have them on 2 vehicles, they've done nothing.

I had one and had no benefit and possibly a small loss of mileage (but it was within the margin of error).
